or was this purely political and i think the answer is it was purely political."may says president obama should have never made this promise from early last year."unless there is a compelling national security purpose we will not monitor the communications of heads of state and govt of our clcle friends and allies."but former intelligence officer lt col anthony shaffer says there may have been a national securiri purpose. clearly have an interest in knowing what our friends and enemies are both thinking.especially he says if those thouts involve military action.the israelis interests are our interests most of ththtime, not always.there's one more layer here though - some of those spied on interactions of netanyahu and other israeli officials may have involved conversations they had with members of congress." i think there's a reason for the separations of power and i think that's something the executive branch, even if they have some level authority to do it, should exercise with great reluctance if at all.
